Drawing the Line: Sexual Harassment on Campus
Hill, Catherine; Silva, Elena
American Association of University Women Educational Foundation
This book presents a look at the "big picture." Is sexual harassment common? What kinds of behaviors are taking place? Who is being harassed, and who is doing the harassing? For students who admit to harassing others, why do they do it? How does sexual harassment affect students' educational experience? What do students think should be done about sexual harassment on campus? This report analyzes findings from a nationally representative survey of undergraduate college students commissioned by the American Association of University Women Educational Foundation and conducted by Harris Interactive in spring 2005. The report is part of AAUW's continuing work to address the problem of sexual harassment in education. It reveals that colleges and universities still have work to do to foster a campus climate that is free from bias and harassment so that all students have an equal opportunity to excel in higher education. As this research documents, most college students experience some type of sexual harassment while at college, often during their first year. This book contains four chapters: (1) Defining Sexual Harassment on Campus; (2) Prevalence of Sexual Harassment on Campus; (3) Dealing With Sexual Harassment on Campus; and (4) Implications. This following are appended: (1) Methodology; and (2) Selected Resources. (Contains 12 figures.)
